Cura 'Layers' slices don't match 'Normal' view mode

Recommended Posts

I've created an STL model in sketchup, and loaded it into Cura. The "Normal" view in Cura looks correct. However, if I print the model, or look through the layers in the "Layers" view there are holes missing from the model - lots of them. In fact, the topmost layer (and all in between) is missing the axle hole through the center of the part.

What would cause cure's Normal view and Layers view to disagree so badly? What might I be doing wrong in Cura or with my STL model?

My experience is that Sketchup is notoriously bad in delivering good models. Cura is pretty robust, but can/will not fix everything. Maybe the X-ray view helps in finding where the model problems are. And in the past, I have used "Solid Inspector2" plugin in Sketchup to fix errors in my models. That worked pretty well.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
